Parenthood

We have reached the finish line where
You transition from mother/father to
Person, flawed
It is as painful for you as it is
For me to navigate these psychological
Waters of a childish adulthood
Where despite the time and effort
There still exists a list of items
That will provoke tantrums
Like the warm vegetables of
Psychoanalysis and the prospect of a
Healing sound bath which is a
Bath nonetheless
We can sit on couches declaring the chains
That have not allowed us to move forward
One by one as a reciprocal line
Not noting that the reality is more
Circular, i.e. the linear must be
Replaced by the spherical and include
The wholeness of life and death
The grief and misery of a joyful sorrow
